Intent for DT

At Newtown, we encourage children to reflect on past and present design technology in order to influence their own designs. We provide opportunities for our pupils to build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to make high quality prototypes and products for a wide range of uses.  They will understand and apply the principles of nutrition to become confident in preparing a range of dishes to suit a design brief. We promote a reflective practice for children to be critical thinkers in order to improve and adapt their products.

As designers, the children will develop their knowledge and skills in the areas of mastering practical skills such as food, textiles and mechanics, designing, making, evaluating and improving as well as taking inspiration from design throughout history.
